26th annual Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Arts returns to Davis

The California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art — the largest professional art function in the region — will run from Friday, April 25, to Sunday, April 27, and is hosted by the John Natsoulas Center for the Arts.

In its 26th year, this event continues to bring the leading national and international ceramic artists to Northern California for a weekend of creative instruction and collaboration.

The event will feature more than 50 exhibitions, many hands-on clay demonstrations and interactive clay events. During the three days, visitors may see the biggest collection of student work from more than 50 schools, as well as established artists.

Presenting artists will include Esther Shimazu, Stephen Braun, Wesley Anderegg, Tom Arie Donch, Donna Billick, Jennifer Brazelton, Arthur Gonzalez, Kevin Snipes and John Toki.

The John Natsoulas Center for the Arts, 521 First St. in downtown Davis, will hold its annual gallery-wide “30 Ceramics Sculptors” exhibition in conjunction with the conference. The work will be on display through May 24. This exhibition was first conceived in 1986, a collaboration between the late Robert Arneson and John Natsoulas, and continues the ceramic traditions made famous by instructors and students of the UC Davis art department and local ceramic artists.

Exhibiting artists include Natasha Diakreva, Arthur Gonzalez, Shenny Cruces, Tom Arie Donch, Jennifer Brazleton, Bill Abright, Donna Billick, Amber Aguirre, Don Fritz, Jon Gariepy, Susannah Israel, Carmen Lang, Calvin Ma, Paula Moran, Louis Mrak, Mary O’Brien, Andy Ruble, Erika Sanada, Tiffany Schmierer, Bar Shacterman, Esther Shimazu, Claudia Tarantino, Wesley Wright, Cindy Williamson, Stan Welsh, Monica Van den Dool, Tomoko Nakazato, Stephen Braun and Wesley Andregg.
